I’m one of those people who can’t leave well enough alone when it comes to my home. : )
9.9 times out of 10, I will guarantee you that how a room looks right after any transformation is still several “tweaks” away from how it will end up.
Lately I’ve been tweaking some of the bedrooms, and I totally had a ‘duh’ moment the other day after I saw what this simple, FREE update did to The Redhead’s room.
I love the light, girly color palette in her room, but I wanted to infuse more of it; things were feeling a little sparse.
I love the green, but you can see from this view, with the green gingham duvet, the green lampshade and green drapes as well, I needed a little more variety.
I made a purple runner for the nightstand (you can kind of see it above), and I liked the punch of color it provided.
I remembered that I had some of that fabric left in my scrap pile, so I snagged it and went to work.
I cut strips of the fabric (I don’t even know how long mine are – I just eyeballed them. Long or short will work – it’s totally just a matter of personal preference) and flagged the ends to give it a more finished look.
Then I just hopped up on a stool and tied them to the curtain rings.
I tied two strips to each ring, but I think if I had more fabric I might add a third on each for a fuller look. But for now, I’m happy.
It’s a project that took me less than 20 minutes from start to finish, and adds a fun pop of color to a room for a fun little girl! :)
